Staying legal

This training course is designed to ensure that Operator licence holders, Transport Managers and CPC holders are fully aware and compliant of your legal and your operational responsibilities. The course is suitable for Operator licence holders, Transport Managers and CPC holders that require familiarisation with their legal responsibilities with regard to undertakings on an operator’s licence. The course provides an understanding of how things can go wrong, and a much deeper understanding of how to keep your operation legal. Many business owners don't realise the legal obligations that go hand in hand with Operator's Licensing. Those that have a basic understanding of legal and legislative obligations can sometimes be put off operating vehicles altogether! Our Transport Manager Training course covers everything you need to know! The main purpose of passenger vehicle operator licensing is to ensure the safe and proper use of vehicles and to protect the environment around operating centres.
